The best way to achieve, crispy golden potatoes is to use natural Iberian Lard. This is a great alternative to goose fat as it gives the potatoes a delicate flavour and they do not absorb the fat, making them really crispy and delicious.

Ingredients for Golden Roast Potatoes

3 - 4 medium potatoes
200g Iberian Lard

How to make Golden Roast Potatoes

  • Peel and wash the potatoes and cut into quarters then cook in salted boiling water for about 10 minutes until just tender.
  • Meanwhile put the lard into a roasting tin and place in the oven, turn the oven to high.
  • Drain the potatoes and put the pan back on the heat for a minute or so to allow the potatoes to dry out. Put the lid on the pan and shake a few times to fluff up the potatoes and season with salt.
  • Tip the potatoes into the roasting tin with the hot, melted lard and shake so that the potatoes are covered all over with the lard.
  • Roast for 30 - 40 minutes until golden brown, basting a couple of times during cooking.

Serve as an accompaniment to a roast dinner or even just on their own as an indulgent snack.
